Classification Talks

Classification talks are a Rotary tradition. It an opportunity for the speaking member to talk about his/her work: classification, past professional achievement and future plans, and for the rest of the club and guests to know the speaking member better.

In our club, we take a "broader" view of classification talks. We believe the talk should cover at least these three subjects: family life, professional life and Rotary life.

  • Family life - The speaker should speak about his/her family: parents, spouse/partner and children.
  • Professional life - His/her classification, past professional achievements and future plans.
  • Rotary life - His/her involvement with Rotary, past official position at the club and district and current position and committee membership. Newer members can talk about why he/she decided to be a Rotarian.

Note this is merely a guideline. The speaker can talk about whatever he/she wishes.

The talks are between five to ten minutes in length.
